Power of Attorney

If a child or third party is acting as Power of Attorney for a survivor, he/she must submit documentation to Concordia Plan Services in order to receive the survivor’s personal and financial information. Survivors of rostered or commissioned workers may apply for additional financial support if they are experiencing financial difficulties. Survivors who are interested in this benefit should either contact their district president or Concordia Plan Services. Concordia Plan Services will mail an application for the additional financial assistance to the survivor.
